Description

Vi d’amfora natural
Producer: Vinyes Domenèch.
Natural red wine from the DO Montsant made with 100% red grenache. Spontaneous alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts without the addition of sulphites (SO2). The wine is aged in 300 liters clay amphoras.
Intense flavor of red and black berries, an infusion of raspberries, currants, and other native berries, with some mint and liquorice leaves drawing out the balsamic notes that surround them. In the mouth, a fruity blend of red and black berries, cherries, raspberries, and blackberries accompanied by a range of balsamic notes: rosemary, mint, liquorice, and some salty and earthy final touches that give it a certain tension and freshness.

Pairing
Snacks, rice with meat, red meats (grilled,  with sauce), charcuterie, semi-mature cheeses, grilled white fish, roasted chicken, vegetables (grill, sautéed), grilled lamb.

Tip: oxigenate or decant it for a while before serving.
